Duke's A rt Refusal
Rollins' Chances for Ackland
Art Fortune Equal with UNC
By Walter Klein
RALEIGH TIMES BUILDING. RALEIGH, January 29 "You
can't make war on Santa Claus."
With this statement, A. B. Andrews, Secretary of the Board of
Trustees of the University revealed today in an exclusive interview
that Duke University has refused the $1,395,000 art school fortune
willed by William Hayes Ackland because acceptance would threat-
-en Duke's continued support by the
Washington Duke foundation.

Sunday the move was deemed nec

This was first news of Duke's rea
son for refusal since Governor James
Melville Broughton gave a secret ac
count of the situation in Tuesday af
ternoon's Board of Trustees meeting
Simultaneously it was discovered
that Rollins college, in Winter Park,
Florida may now have an equal chance
with Carolina of obtaining the fortune
because it has already intervened in
the Ackland relatives' suit for the
"Because Rollins is now entering liti
gation, Carolina's counsels in Washing
ton must get down to hard, fast work
if they want to insure the University's
claim to the estate," Andrews disclosed.
Full text of Carolina's coming inter
vention in the suit, scheduled to take
place within 30 days, was secured to
day from the office of Attorney Gen
eral Harry McMuIlen. The "copy had
just been dispatched from Washington
by the University's head counsel, form

Carolina's intervention attacks the
startling information brought out in
Rollins college's own previous inter
vention: the fact that Ackland had
cooperated with Rollins college in draw
ing up actual blueprints for the "Wil
iam Hayes Ackland Memorial" to be
constructed at Winter Park.
" Second defense to be forwarded by
Gardner in Washington is that the Ack
land relatives, who, it is learned,
brought the original suit, do not legal
ly have any right to the $1,395,000.
"Becafuse of refusal by Duke Uni
versity, the court should appoint the
University of North Carolina to act in
the stead of Duke under terms of the
will of William Ackland," the counsel
"The intervener (Carolina) has no
belief as to the truth of allegations
that Rollins college is a 'charitable cor
poration and that no part of its funds
are for private profit.
, "The funds of the University are not
used for private gain, a condition stip
ulated in the Ackland will."
Ackland's will was also examined
yesterday. The 84 year old Tennessee
millionaire made conditions that the
art building itself must not cost more
than $300,000, and that his remains
be buried within the Memorial.
The successful stock market investor
left exactly $1,395,399.12. After his
1936 will was completed, which included
Carolina and Rollins as recipients in
case of Duke's refusal, Ackland carried
on extensive negotiations with Duke,
finally leading to the present, super
seding document. In April, 1938, Duke
had its architect submit plans for a
